Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God

J. I. Packer
If God is in control of everything, can Christians sit back and not bother to evangelize? Or does active evangelism imply that God is not really sovereign at all? J. I. Packer shows in this new edition to the popular IVP Classics how both of these attitudes are false. In a careful review of the biblical evidence, he shows how a right understanding of God's sovereignty is not so much a barrier to evangelism as an incentive and powerful support for it. With over 100,000 copies in print, is truly a classic that should be read by every Christian.

This remains a classic for good reason. For all those struggling with the integration of a strong doctrine of God's sovereignty and our responsibility to share the gospel, Packer's work is really foundational. He provides powerful, biblical incentives for evangelism and, at the same, reminds the reader of the necessity of God's work in unbelievers lives.
